Pretty hair clips
I don't like to wear flowers much as a print in clothing, but as an accessory, I'm there. I started making these when my sister gave me what flower petals she had left from her wedding. Then I had to go out buy different kinds of flower bushes. There's a store with dollar items right down the street from my house. I stocked up!! Small flowers work best. The sunflower set has two hair clips and a pin.

Thank you for putting up this tutorial! I have a bunch of those clips that are just crying for me to do something with them, but I wasn't sure what was the best way to attach a decoration to them, so thank you for making such a detailed tutorial! Happy

The felt serves as a base for the flower to be glued to.
